You can straighten your smile discreetly with Invisalign, the clear and comfortable alternative to traditional metal braces. With Invisalign, there are no hard metal brackets and wires to poke or irritate the gums and mouth. Invisalign utilizes soft, removable trays to gently straighten and align the teeth. Invisalign is an excellent option for adults and teens who want a beautiful, straight smile without wearing traditional braces that are readily noticeable. In San Antonio, TX, Invisalign is available through Dr. Emanuel Dehelean of Silver Oaks Dentistry.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a convenient and an effective method for discreetly straightening your smile. Unlike traditional braces with hard, metal brackets and wires, Invisalign uses soft plastic trays to straighten and align the teeth. The trays fit over the top and bottom rows of teeth and new trays are provided every few weeks. Positioning of the teeth changes slightly with each new set of trays, which is how the teeth are gently guided into the desired position. The trays are customized specifically for you. In San Antonio, Invisalign is offered at Silver Oaks Dentistry.
Advantages of Invisalign
There are several advantages to choosing Invisalign for straightening your smile. Invisalign offers comfort and convenience, while being discreet. Advantages of Invisalign include:
- The clear trays are discreet and barely noticeable to others.
- The trays are made from a soft plastic material and are comfortable to wear.
- There are no uncomfortable metal components to poke and irritate the mouth.
- The trays are easily removed when eating and drinking to prevent food particles from becoming trapped between the aligner trays and teeth.
- The trays can be removed when brushing and flossing to achieve a more thorough cleaning and better oral hygiene.
- The removable trays can be temporarily taken out when having your photo taken.
- The aligner trays provide protection against wear and tear for individuals who grind their teeth.

If you have misaligned teeth or problems with your bite, you have probably considered orthodontic treatment. Many people believe orthodontic treatment means wearing metal wires and brackets on your teeth for an extended period of time. However, that is no longer the case. With Invisalign, you can get a straighter smile without a mouth full of metal. Learn more about Invisalign with your San Antonio, TX dentist, Dr. Emanuel Dehelean at Silver Oaks Dentistry.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment which straightens the teeth and improves the bite. However, rather than using traditional methods using metal brackets and wires, Invisalign uses clear, plastic, aligner trays. Much like traditional braces, the trays put pressure onto the teeth to move them into their desired positions. However, unlike traditional braces, Invisalign is completely removable. The trays, which come in a series, are worn one after the other and switched every two weeks.
Invisalign vs. Traditional Braces
Invisalign’s aligner trays are virtually invisible. The aligner trays allow you to straighten your teeth discreetly without the world knowing. Traditional braces force wearers to avoid certain foods like popcorn or whole apples. They also add several steps to the at-home oral care routine as the patient must floss between each wire and bracket using special flossers. Invisalign does not require these extra steps and allows you to eat the foods you love and clean your teeth with ease. Simply remove your aligner trays to eat and perform your oral care routine.

If you and Dr. Dehelean decide that Invisalign is the best treatment for you, the process begins with a consultation. This is your time to discuss realistic results, how the treatment works, and ask any other questions you may have. A 3D mold of your mouth is sent to Invisalign’s laboratory, and allows them to customize your aligner trays. Before work on the trays begins, the laboratory creates a video showing the route on which your teeth will move, including your end results. When you and Dr. Dehelean approve the video, the laboratory creates the aligner trays over the course of several weeks. With the trays completed, treatment begins. You should wear your aligner trays at least 22 hours a day.
